    Some very good books are being written but sales are going down due to the fact that most people love to see a dull movie remake!

    BTW, sales of books about magic and the occult are going upward. Maybe something is really wrong here.

    I'm ordering Stephen Hawking's new book, "The Grand Design". Can't wait to read about his "M-theory", with "11 space-time dimensions, vibrating strings, point particles, two-dimensional membranes, three-dimensional blobs, and other objects that are more difficult to picture and occupy even more dimensions of space."
    Sounds pretty cool to me!

    Hey, if one of them can show me how to conjure Kodachrome in a crockpot I'm interested! But it had better show me how to turn it into a finished slide...no scratches or funny color, either!

    That's me..crackpot with a crockpot. But if it works I'll be rich, at least as rich as Kodak!

    Oh.
    Uhhmm....
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    "His M-theory"?

    That has been the subject of many articles before Hawking and Ed Witten has been giving talks on 11 space for years. You don't read enough!

    Hawking had to retract his biggest theory, and now he proposes a universe without God. Someone may take a Fatwa out on him!

    most digital photography is done by sloppy shooters... once you get behind photoshop and start manipulating your image, it takes as long as it would in the darkroom, (sometimes longer when you factor in the lousy digital image people start with). The only difference is ones a "dry" process and one isn't.

    film will die, who knows when or how? soon? maybe... and it will come in a way no one predicted but by a combination of factors.

    our job is to use, encourage, and teach and it will be around a bit longer that we think!

    I'll be any kind of moron if it'll make me rich!

    Or even provide a steady income.

    this sounds like we're due for another rate increase at the hands of multi-national companies that will tell us 'as demand drops, prices will increase'. What horror. what shit. But that is ALOT of dye and emulsion that is going to sit in a warehouse. Maybe we'll get access as consumers to some new emulsions as they try to figure out what to do with it all. Hopefully they'll find a way to re-use any surplus without just passing the costs on to us.

    You cannot reuse or "rescue" outdated or surplus film or paper. It is essentially scrap. Look at it from the aspect of a butcher shop. What do they do with meats that have gone beyond the expiration date and are now bad?
